Un-canny challenge.

The U.S. Conference of Mayors and Novelis, Atlanta, have expanded their aluminum can recycling contest with Keep America Beautiful Inc. (KAB).

Officially launched at the U.S. Conference of Mayors annual meeting in June, the 2006 Cans for Cash--City Recycling Challenge offers a total of 12 $5,000 awards for municipalities and four $2,500 awards for KAB affiliates.

More than 100 cities have participated in the Cans for Cash Challenge during the past two years, resulting in the collection and recycling of more than 160 million aluminum cans, recovering more than $2.5 million in aluminum value and diverting nearly 5 million pounds of material from landfills, according to event organizers.

This year's campaign will run from Sept. 15 through Sept. 30. The contest is divided into four divisions based on population, and awards are given in three recycling categories: most cans collected; most innovative idea; and partnering with a local KAB affiliate.

The winners will be announced on America Recycles Day, Nov. 15, 2006.
